    LR 6.14 Architecture

    Before you work on files and folder structure, might I suggest first getting a handle on your your catalogs so you can find the most current working version(s)? How many catalogs do you normally use, and how many backups of them do you have? Ideally, you want the working catalog itself if...

    LR 6.14 Architecture

    Are you able to elaborate on either of these statements? And by "architecture", are you referring to folder structure? Do you remember the folder structure of your images before you needed to reinstall LR? Is it exactly the same today? And while you are aware of how to move images, did yo...

    Previous Imports

    "Previous Import is not actually a catalog, but rather a view into your catalog (despite where it is located in the panel), it is kind of like a smart collection that LR offers for your viewing convenience (unless for some reason that you created a catalog by that name). If you delete images...

    File size and export

    It is a bit of a mystery as to how much IQ is actually being sacrificed for size, and without running a few samples first, I would not want to rely on it if IQ is important. At least with the 0-100 Quality scale, you have control over what is happening. I still think that this is a must read...

    File size and export

    I was going to suggest that as well, but as I do not know if the reduction comes from resolution or IQ, I held off on mentioning it. I am assuming that it probably comes from the latter, but that is only an assumption. --Ken

    external hard drives

    To elaborate on Johan's point, make sure that the new drive has the same name and the exact same path names to the image files. When done correctly (as Johan described), LR is totally fine with a substitution of drives. --Ken

    BACK UPS

    Yes, the backup function backs up all the catalog file, but not previews (which can be created again in LR). So, once you create the backup, which resides in a folder named by the date and time, you will want to copy it to one of the external drives. You can do this manually, with sync...

    Olympus sells off imaging business

    While I am in a wait and see mode, it is not fully clear what JPI will do with "the assets". My understanding is that their typical approach is to trim out expenses and try to make the business profitable. That may not bode very well for what we know of as Olympus Imaging today. Thom Hogan...

    BACK UPS

    Welcome to the forum. You can create a backup by going to the Edit menu and selecting Catalog Settings. At the bottom of the window are the backup settings. When you exit LR, the window will appear and you can create a backup. Here are more detailed instructions: How to back up catalogs in...

    Trying to gather comments on photos

    It's good to know that SM lets guests us the big services to log in for commenting. That makes me wonder if Flickr also uses that type of registration system for comments as they are now part of SM. I have not done SQL queries and really do not have an interest in learning, so I am trying to...

    Trying to gather comments on photos

    The videos and articles I watched showed Classic pulling back the comments from a published collection and displaying them in the right panel so I was hoping there was some reasonable method of exporting or extracting them. I do not do any work in SQL so that is not really an option for me. I...
